Public Hearing

ANP holds public hearing on social participation in its regulatory decisions

04/01/2021 | 09h57

The ANP held a public hearing yesterday (3/31) on the draft resolution that regulates social participation in the Agency, including instruments such as prior consultation, public consultation and public hearing.


The objective is to update the rules on ways of receiving contributions from the market and society on the Agency's regulatory activity, adapting them to changes in legislation and new technological solutions. The proposed provisions contribute to increasing social participation and transparency in ANP decisions.

 

The proposal seeks to regulate and encourage participation in ANP's regulatory decisions, not only of the thousands of regulated agents at all stages of the production, distribution and resale chain, but of society as a whole, also impacted by the Agency's regulation.

 

Currently, the subject is regulated by two ANP resolutions: Resolution ANP No. 5/2004, which provides for the public hearing process; and ANP Resolution No. 822/2020, which regulates the holding of public hearings by videoconference, due to the state of emergency of international public health resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

The new resolution consolidates the rules on the subject, considering the changes made in the current legislation, in particular by Law 13,848 / 2019, on the obligations and duties of the regulatory agencies regarding the conduct of consultations and public hearings, as well as the technological advances that provided the emergence of new platforms for social participation.

 

Um exemplo é a regulamentação da audiência pública remota, que permite ampliar o número de participantes e diminuir seus custos, uma vez que não precisam se deslocar ao local físico de realização da audiência. Além disso, as audiências públicas passam a ser gravadas em vídeo e disponibilizadas na internet, aumentando seu alcance.

 

A minuta de resolução passou por consulta pública de 45 dias, na qual foram recebidas 35 contribuições. As sugestões recebidas na consulta e na audiência serão avaliadas pela área técnica, para alteração ou não da minuta original. O texto consolidado passará por análise jurídica da Procuradoria Federal junto à ANP e por aprovação da diretoria colegiada da Agência, antes de sua publicação.
